5:04am
preparations for today. first we go to tara moriarty who is on a developing story that is causing unwanted distractions. tara. >> reporter: it's a little straik two san francisco 49er players who made an antibullying campaign video at first denied making it. >> something you should never experience is being bullied, intimidated, or being pressed into manager you are not. >> reporter: they told usa today sports reporter they didn't know realize the purpose behind the video was to fight bullying among lesbian, gay, bisexual teens. they were asked about it behind culliver's interview. now the video has been pulled. brooks said i didn't make any video. this is america if someone wants to be gay, they can be gay. it's their right. when his memory was finally jarred he said that it was an
5:05am
antibullying video but not a gay rights thing. when you look at the video they have short clips and the words -- never told them of the specifics of the video. san francisco was the first nfl that take part in the it gets better campaign. we will talk to 49er fans to see what they had to say about this. we're live in daly city i'm tara moriarty ktvu channel 2 news. >> we have live team coverage of the 49ers and super bowl continues. joe is live in new orleans on the final preparations for sunday's big game. >> reporter: i'm going to show you something you can't see in the bay area this morning. that is the sun coming up over the mississippi river. as new orleans comes awake this morning. we are about to get to the reason we're all here. and that is super bowl xlvii on
5:06am
sunday. they have never had a joint press conferences between opposing super bowls but then again they've never had brothers in the super bowl either. one of the big thing is michael crabtree as a key receiver. crabtree is having his best year by far. he's got nine touchdown catches over 1,000 yards receiving and part of it due to the fact he's been 100% healthy this year. he says that is not the only story. a lot of people forget i've had four quarterbacks since i've been in the league. this is not my first transition. a lot of people want to put emphasis on ellis smith to colin kaepernick. this is my fourth quarterback. that's crazy.
5:07am
you know what i'm saying? it's not my first transition. it's all about playing football. a lot of people forget i think a lot of people in here forgot we had four or five quarterbacks since i've been playing. it's all good. >> reporter: we are getting close to the part of the week people are saying enough talking let's play the football game. we are going to see in an hour from some place that has pirates of the caribbean theme. but until then, let me give you another shot of the sun coming up over the mississippi river. live in new orleans i'm joe fonzi. >> thank you for that. make sure you stay right here with ktvu for continuing super bowl coverage. look at our ktvu team, they will bring you live reports on the big easy in every newscast leading up to the big game. don't forget sunday night after the game switch back here for channel 2 for a live local post game show with all the fans in the bay area and new orleans.
5:08am
we are getting a new look at an over night fire in oakland that left dozens of people in the dark. claudine wong is out there in the neighborhood this morning where it happened. and just spoke with someone the person that called 911. >> reporter: we have new information, new video, new details for you about this over night fire that is being called suspicious. let me give you a look at some of the damage. these used to be cypress trees. the flames shooting off these were 30 feet in the air. if you want an idea how hot it burned, all you have to do is look at the car that was parked next to it. they say it could have been worse it could have spread to the other trees and homes around here. it certainly scared a lot of people. we talked to one man who called 911 and grabbed his camera. he's trying to get his family, grandmother, baby out of the house when he saw the flames.
5:09am
he took his camera outside and showed us what it looked like. certainly shocked by what he saw. it's smoky. there is smokes come into the building. firefighters got on scene a little after 2:00 this morning. they say there were embers getting everywhere. they were certainly concerned about it spreads. they were able to stop it. we talked about salvador about what he saw. >> we were sitting inside and i heard a loud cracking and came outside and the whole street was it will up. >> reporter: what did you think? >> i was surprised. i told my mom to grab the baby and grandmother and we went outside. >> reporter: it looks like three of the trees were burned by this fire. a couple cars we could see it did knock down. this one looks like it knocked down an electrical wire. that knocked out power to 40 people. it also went over to a dumpster and again we just had a big cloud of embers coming from the
5:10am
trees. but all the small little fires separate and that makes fair fighters suspicious about what happened. fire investigator was out here. spent 45 minutes out here. has now left the scene. again that investigation continues. in the meantime residents do not have power in this building next to us right here. that is because the electrical line that fed this building is down. we called into pg&e but firefighters tell us it could be hours before the power comes back on. time is 5:08. it's the first in the nation and the city of oakland will introduce it today. it's both an id card and a debt card. it's designed to help low income people as well as immigrants who often don't have access to bank accounts and have to rely on expensive check cashers. there are critics that fear they will be targets of fraud. because those cards contain personal information. a lost or stolen car could give thieves all the information they need to drain a bank

5:33am
with more details and who police are looking for. >> reporter: we broke this news about 40 minutes ago. sal broke it about 40 minutes ago. here are the new details we are learning about this amber alert. we can expect to see most likely some of the signs that will be flashing as well. we understand that those signs are flashing in oakland as we speak. the latest information we have right now is that police are looking for a 1973 gray chevy truck. it has the california license plate 7n79574. i want to repeat that again if you're out there on the roadways. california license plate gray 1973 gray chevy truck 7n79574. the name of the child has been released. one-year-old named isaza tolefree. the suspect in this case is kim tolefree who is described as a 56-year-old black man. last check he was possibly driving the older version of
5:34am
the 1973 gray chevy truck. according to scanner traffic we are hearing he may have been wearing a green plaid shirt. we are working to cop firm that information-- we are working to confirm that information. we have several calls into police if they have pictures of the suspect or child. as soon as we have that, we'll pass that along. in a half hour we'll have another live report there. back to you. thank you. time now 5:32. dozens of people in oakland have no electricity right now after a suspicious over night fire. we've been following this since 4:30 this morning. ktvu claudine wong is live in that neighborhood and the pg&e crews just got there. claudine. >> reporter: that is right. we saw them roll off within the last 20mys. you can see they are across the street. assessing the situation. trying to figure out how to get power back on to folks. they tell me it will take a couple hours. take a look at this damage. you can see two of the cypress trees that are just destroyed.
5:35am
nothing much left of them. then the car parked right next to them melted fender, melted bumper. just by the heat from these flames. the fire was put out pretty quickly. but the flames did damage at least three trees. two cars. one dumpster. fortunately firefighters were able to stop it. i want to show you this video we got this morning. this is video taken by resident salvador. got out his family and then grabbed his phone and started recording after realizing the trees outside his apartment complex were on fire. this happened around 2:00 this morning. firefighters got here pretty quickly. they thought it was suspicious. opd is out here doing a report. residents say they don't think this was an accident at all. >> yeah there was actually a tree on fire like somebody it will it right there and came and it will it right here. there is a branch in the middle of the street that was already it will. >> reporter: when you looked at it you thought something is
5:36am
wrong. >> yeah. it wasn't an accidental fire. somebody did it. >> reporter: okay so as the investigation goes forward, the biggest issue pressing right now is this power outage that was caused by the fire. if we come back out here live, this is the apartment building right next to the trees that is left in the dark. again if we come back over here and show you pg&e crews working to get this fixed and get the power back on. the wires there are actually concerned about are the ones attached to that pole. one of them came down over night during this fire. we have to worry about replacing those wires and get things all wired back up. we will keep an eye on the situation. we'll keep you updated on how things are going out here. live in oakland i'm claudine wong. time is 5:34. independent monitor that is overseeing oakland police reforms say the police department took a big step backward. this report is specifically citing police response to the
5:37am
occupy oakland protest. the report is supporting police chief howard jordan who is trying to fire two officers and suspend 15 others. the federal government could take over the oakland police department if oakland police don't comply with court order reforms. the same report found two oakland police officers pointed their guns at a sleeping 19- month-old child. it happened last summer on market street while the officers were serving a search warrant and misdemeanor drug case. oakland police have released a statement saying they were facing dangerous drug dealers and had their guns drawn for protection. in our super bowl bound coverage we are two games from the big game. in an hour we will hear from 49er coach jim harbaugh and john harbaugh in a special news conference. topics will include family upbringing as well as sharing the same practice facility right now. jim harbaugh stood next to
5:38am
colin kaepernick as the team went through drills. the 49ers called the 100 minute practice one of the best of the season. they are allowing the ravens to play on the same field because they complained about their practice field. the city does not want a repeat of what happened after the giants won the world series in october. a muni bus was set on fire. a number of stores were vandalized. the city plans to remove trash bins so they won't be burned. police are also adding extra patrols specifically in the mission, marina, and north beach areas. there will also be a dui check point saturday night. tune to ktvu mornings on 2 tomorrow morning. san francisco police chief greg suhr is going to join us in the studio. hungry 49er fans are stocking up for the big game. safeway has deck rated its stores. americans will spend $50 million on super bowl parties.
5:39am
hot sellers include tailgating staples soda, beer, chips, and dip. one safeway sold 70 cases of avocados in one day. super bowl ad is catching some unwanted attention. we talked a little bit about this yesterday. some minority groups are calling the coke commercial racist. coming up at 5:45 the stereotypes they find offensive. popular display of love in los gatos it will be coming down today. janine de la vega is in los gatos to talk about why the town is saying the so-called love locks have to come down from a downtown bridge. >> reporter: dave, we are here on the main street bridge and right here the padlocks they are a declaration of people's love. some of these couples actually had their name engraved on there. they have anniversary dates here. but the city is warning people that these locks are going to be cut off today and they are asking people to remove them.
5:40am
so far 17 remain here. now the locks started appearing here last fall after one couple had a padlock engraved to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. they got their idea after seeing similar landmarks locked up by lovers around the world. other couples followed suit. the number of locks grew to at least 25. but airship appeared in december saying the bridge is owned by cal tran and they pose a risk to passing motorists. many people were disappointed saying the locks are harmless and it's just an expression of love. now back out here live you can see there is a new sign posted saying that the locks will be removed as a of today but the solution is that also the locks are going to be relocated. people that take them off, those locks will then be taken to the museum of los gatos. and they will be disployed on somewhat of a love fence.
5:41am
just in time for valentines. people that don't come this morning, sometime later today somebody is going to come and cut them off and they will be taken to a corporation yard. and then after that if people don't claim them they will be thrown away. coming up later we will try to stop some people here to see what they think and see if that is an acceptable solution. because there was a lot of outrage when news of this first came out. reporting live janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 news. 5:39 is the time. back over to sal to cover traffic. >> we are doing the east bay commute right now. looking at the east shore freeway. the traffic does look pretty good. you can see the amber alert sign it will up here. and all the changeable message cane sines will be it will up with information. in case you are just joining us we will have more information on the amber alert. who they are looking for and where the child was taken.
